    3. Review your activity

    Before requesting your certificates, make sure that each person has met John Muir Award Criteria. You can use this simple Four Challenge Review to help gauge this. Certificates are provided free of charge but cost us £1 each to produce and post. Please consider making a donation to our Wild Action Fund to help cover the cost of your certificates and support the John Muir Award.
